We're not strictly a Quaker organisation but we were founded by a Quaker (Scilla Elworthy) and have links to lots of Quaker organisations all over the UK, many of whom regularly support us as our aims are close to theirs.
Following the previous successful singing sessions at Friends House, Leaveners will bring you another ‘Sharing Sounds’ session: an inspirational evening of singing. Opera singer Caroline Trutz will share her musical knowledge with singers of all levels.
We'll be in the George Fox room at Friends House, and it will be available from around 6pm with tea and coffee, and we'll start singing around 7pm.
London Quakers are here again, this time with a day at Friends House on Saturday 1 October about the banking system and how it could be so much better. Three first class speakers will lead us through some of the contentious, difficult, knotty, puzzling issues of how money does and doesn't work for people.
- David Shirreff, Economic Journalist and author of, "Don't start from here. We need a banking revolution" will lead a session on what banks do, why it isn't doing what is needed and what might be done about it.
Following the very successful 'Creating New Housing Stock' Workshop in February, London Quakers have organised a follow-on day to do more work on Community Land Trusts, and ways to generate housing with long term affordability. Apparently there is another legal mechanism, as well as the one the CLT uses. We're looking at this, plus other initiatives which will interest Quakers.
Detailed programme to follow, but put this in your diary now - judging by the level of interest in February, this one is going to be full.
